在法國,女孩們則稱心儀的騎士們為”瓦朗坦Valentine”。一直到十五世紀初,在英國囚監長達25年的法國中古世紀名詩人沙爾奧爾良Charles d\'Orleans,更將傳送\"愛的訊息La Valentine\"的習俗帶回法國。據說,在漫長的監禁歲月,沙爾奧爾良每年二月十四日都不忘捎上一封滿是愛意的情書,給他遠在法國的未婚妻瑪莉克萊芙Marie de Cleves。直至十五世紀末,\"聖瓦朗坦Saint-Valentine\"便名正言順地成為情侶的守護者啦!

十八世紀,全歐洲的情人更流行在情人節當日,傳送畫有希臘神話中的愛神邱彼特的\"愛的訊息La Valentine\"。在十九世紀,\"愛的訊息La Valentine\"要算是最羅曼蒂克的示愛方式,通常卡片上還附有愛的小詩des poemes amoureux。維多利亞時代的\"愛的訊息La Valentine\"更是精緻華麗,除了有羽毛、蕾絲與絲綢的點綴外,噴上香水的乾燥花更是少不了的裝飾。直至十九世紀中葉,情人節更廣傳自美洲,成為全球性的節日了。

    In France, girls call the knights they admire “Valentine”. At the beginning of the 15th century, a famous French Medieval poet Charles d’Orleans, who was held prisoner in England for 15 years, brought back the custom of sending love messages (La Valentine). According to legend, during the long imprisonment, every February 14th, Charles d’Orleans never failed to send a love letter to his fiancée Marie de Cleves in France far away from him. Saint-Valentine became the guardian of lovers by the end of the 15th century.

    In the 18th century, it is fashionable for the lovers in Europe to send messages with the drawing of Cupid on Valentine’s Day. In the 19th century, sending a love message (La Valentine) is viewed as the most romantic way of showing your love. Usually, the cards come with short poems of love (des poemes amoureux). The love messages during the Victorian period are even more luxurious. Besides the feathers, laces and silk, scented dried flowers were also a staple decoration. In mid 19th century, the concept of Valentine’s day spread to America, and became a global celebration/holiday.
